I haven’t been to Cherry Beach in months. Hasn’t really been the season, the construction between me and the beach has been a deterrent, and my health keeps bringing me up short.
I was so very glad to return to the beach today. Beth and I rode down on BikeShare, and it was lovely to see bits of the developing Don mouth and ride over the new bridge again. Apart from anything else it feels like a bit of a personal return. There are still a lot unknowns but I feel more like myself again more often these days.
I love the old lifesaving stations especially when set against a blue sky (or a stormy one). It’s just so good to be at the water.
Now I’m sitting in the Keating Pub, enjoying the sunshine and a gin and tonic to celebrate a return to the beach and (hopefully) a return to health.
